Default Coaches Association expects layoffs if there is a lockout

Coaches to possibly unionize???

Quote:
A work stoppage could cost NFL players money in the short term. It could cost teams money in sponsorships and ticket renewals that they never get back.

It could also cost some assistant coaches their jobs.

NFL Coaches Association’s executive director Larry Kennan told Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com that he expects layoffs almost immediately in the event of a lockout.

“The day after the lockout, I’m guessing there will be a significant number of coaches terminated,” Kennan said.

Kennan rightly points out that coaches will be somewhat forgotten victims in a potential lockout. Many coaches that keep their jobs will take big paycuts.

“Everybody’s writing about the players and the owners. That’s a major deal,” Kennan said. “But the players get paid during the season. If there’s a work stoppage in March, it doesn’t really affect the players. But it does affect the coaches. It affects us a whole lot more in March and April.”

These types of issues are why Kennan has raised the possibility of coaches unionizing. He indicated to Marvez, however, he first plans to meet with owners after a new CBA is worked out in order to seek the changes his coaches desire.
